Hi !

I'm currently doing a thermal analysis on a sphere surrounded by air using the solver chtMultiRegionFoam and snappyHexMesh for the mesh.

When I am adding layers, I want to display the layer coverage on the sphere using Paraview and the filter "nSurfaceLayers".

The "problem" is that the layers extruded belong to the region of the air so when I am applying the filter only on the internalMesh of the sphere, it says that there is no layers on the sphere which is logic. (picture attached)

But I really need to display in "3D" to have a better understanding of the coverage on the whole surface instead of using a slice (second picture attached).

Is there a filter/trick in Paraview to see the layer coverage on the sphere ?

Cheers,

PS : I am using Paraview 5.8
